We reported yesterday that the 49ers might be a trade partner for the Jets who are looking to trade down.
According to Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports, the 49ers are looking to trade up in the first round of tonight’s draft to take defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson.
It increasingly sounds like SF wants a DL via trade up with Sheldon Richardson as the likely target.

With Justin Smith getting older, Richardson would be a nice player for the 49ers.
